Child Outcomes 

This year’s results from BRIGANCE® and TerraNova® national assessments show that the longer children were enrolled in KinderCare, the sooner they reached their social, emotional and academic milestones.

According to TerraNova® assessments of mathematics and reading skills at the end of the kindergarten year, children enrolled in KinderCare’s kindergarten programs exceed grade level expectations by two months.

Data from BRIGANCE® assessment results show children in KinderCare programs met their developmental milestones on average more than 6 weeks ahead of children not enrolled in KinderCare by the spring of 2022.
